Backyard resident

What do you think? Is this Cardinal the same one from last summer’s nestlings? I’ve heard they stay in the area where they were born, mate for life and stay together year-round. I’d like to think he’s one I worried about during the 100+ degree days last July and August. All grown up and dressed to the nines.

I was cleaning out some dead leaves a few weeks ago and discovered another nest in the Viburnum bush! A decoy nest perhaps to distract predators? Or neighbors of some sort? Guess we’ll see.

  1. I’ve heard that they stay in the same general area also.
    Wouldn’t that be something if it were the same one??
    This is a beautiful photograph, and those little babies are just precious.
